"The chairs themselves, as well as looking visually fascinating, portray the thriftiness and conscious efforts of the Chinese to never let materials go to waste." - Michael Wolf
In this book, Wolf documents a collection of makeshift seating arrangements found in the alleyways of Hong Kong. Typically comprised of fragments of broken seating, they are bound with fabric, plastic and string - balanced, propped and supported by appendages of salvaged material.
Hong Kong Informal Seating Arrangements is the 3rd of 9 volumes from Michael Wolf's Hong Kong Back Alley Encyclopedia, in which he celebrates the diverse aspects of street life in Hong Kong and the improvisational skills of the urban residents.
